The melodic and haunting sound of Simon playing the Uillean pipes, accompanied amongst others by Richard Lacy (keyboards) and David Bird (cittern - a type of lute) floats soothingly through the air to touch one's spirit and point us to Jesus. This instrumental collection of hymns with arrangements for pipes, guitars, keyboards and drums includes the well known songs "Amazing Grace" and "Be Thou My Vision" as well as some original pieces in a variety of styles created only this year. "Dance Of Joy" has glimpses of a Riverdance rhythm, with "If Tomorrow" providing moments to savour cittern and quena. This is a lovely album which could set the scene for private worship, prayer and meditation or just to help you relax any time of day.
